My DH is the property manager of our county's libraries, so he decided to make this birdhouse for the children's section and cover it with an old book that was going to be "retired" because it was in bad shape. He covered the outside with poly and used a wire nut at the perch. The librarians loved it!

Being retired from local library & working in the children's department for some yrs, I agree w/your hubby's librarians! LOVE IT!!! (looks like he re-inforced w/plastic pcs for the corners. Did he have a pattern for this? Curious minds! TFS, Marlene! Jeanne S.

That's really cute & I'm sure the kids love it! DH did a good job & smart to add the plastic pieces so the edges don't "go" so fast as sure some of kids will want to touch it.!! Jan

Wonderful recycling. I sometimes pick up fave retired children's books from the dump to avoid their destruction. But I'm never sure what to do with them. Love this.

RE: New birdhouse

what do you do with the rages of the book under the roof? Is this house weather resistant or just for inside use? THanks
